Calling all Prammies!!

On Saturday June 23rd, as part of the Fete of the Field in Ferndown, the John Thornton Pram Race is back! Bigger and better than ever.

The Prams will take to the starting line on King George V Playing Field at 3pm and follow a 1.5 K course with various fun challenges and activities along the way.  Competitors must be over 16 years of age and an entry fee of £10 per person is payable on registration.

If you don't want to miss out on this fun packed event you need to get a team together and sign up today.  You will need a minimum of 2 people up to a maximum of 5.  Teams will consist of a baby and at least one pusher up to a maximum of one baby and 4 pushers. Obviously, you'll need a pram too and dressing up is essential!

We’ve got an exciting line up of prams and this year the addition of an optional Drag Race will add to the fun. Prams will compete against each other and the clock, with a prize for the winning team.

There are lots of prizes and trophies on offer, but the main focus of the event is fun fun, fun!
